Tony McVay has been one of my favorite people for the last 38 years! He scared me to death on my first day of working with him, back in 1974 - all in fun, of course. When he and Leonard McCauley teamed up, there was no stopping them. I have so many happy memories of Tony and will always smile when I think of him. He was a good man and we are all better for having had him in our lives. I'm so sorry for your loss and am glad that he all of you to love.
See has been a lot of fun knowing u.
My sweet Daddy was extremely devoted to his children and grandchildren. He was their Eepaw who loved to feed them Cheeto's and powered donuts when he babysat. Daddy would drive from Coweta to south Bixby twice a week to watch Ross and Bailey while I completed my Bachelors Degree in Education in Tahlequah. There is nothing he would not do for his family (or his horses). I miss you sooo much!! Not your nurse daughter but your reading teacher daughter! Love you to the moon and stars forever!!
